Project description

 

The country has experienced food and energy crises in recent years, causing extremely serious dietary deficiencies, especially for children. As a result, GERES and BIOM, its Kyrgyz partner association, set up a pilot project in 2009 to grow vegetables in greenhouses, based on GERES successful experience in Ladakh (India). The aim is to demonstrate that vegetables can be grown all year round in bioclimatic greenhouses built with local materials. Short-term objectives:Les objectifs à court terme :
 
  • construction of 2 new solar greenhouse and agricultural training for users
  • development of the solargreenhouse.org website, designed to promote solar greenhouses in cold Asian regions

 

The mid-term objective is to build on the experience and organize a workshop to share experience with government and non-government actors. Facilitation of the community of practice hosted by the solargreenhouse.org website will be continued.
